David Goldbloom and Friends

In a series of candid conversations among old friends, David Goldbloom, former Chair of the Stratford Festival Board of Governors and Senior Medical Advisor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, sits down with some leading advocates and academics to discuss their work and their lives – and maybe to reminisce a little about their youthful misadventures.

In Conversation with Bob Rae

For many decades, Bob Rae has been a prominent figure in Canadian and global politics, both in and out of power as Premier of Ontario while leading the provincial New Democratic Party and as a federal parliamentarian, including serving as Interim Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. He now represents Canada at the United Nations as its 25th Canadian Ambassador. He is a person of passion and principle, as well as an ever-aspiring musician. He is a longstanding fan of the Stratford Festival, and his wife Arlene Perly Rae is a former member of the Board of Governors.
